The chump is a cut of meat from the back end of a sheep just above the leg. It is often cut into chops, and has a rich lamb flavour. Lamb chump chops can be prepared on your grill, but if it isn't grilling season you can make them just as well in a pan on your hob.
Season your chump chops with salt and pepper, or the marinade of your choice. Flavours may include jerk spice, garlic or mint.
Turn your burner to medium heat and add about a tablespoon of olive oil or other cooking oil to a sauté pan.
Wait for the oil to heat and sear your chump chops on both sides until the outside is a golden brown colour.
Reduce the heat and cook for six to eight more minutes on each side.
Place your chump chops on a cutting board or plate and let them rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
Consider making a pan sauce with garlic, cream or any other ingredients you like for an added dimension to your chops.
